BALLINA Naval and Maritime Museum has been awarded a $5280 Federal Community Heritage Grant to fund a preservation needs assessment.

Curator Ron Creber accepted the grant and also attended a three-day preservation and collection management workshop at the National Library of Australia in Canberra.

Mr Creber said the grant was important in supporting the effort to preserve the museum at the grassroots level.

"While the grant provides funds, the workshop offers the expertise to help us protect our collection and make it accessible while it remains in the local context," he said.

A conservator will be engaged to conduct the Ballina museum's assessment.
